From the publisher:
The "Alice" stories have always been a favorite topic for illustrators. Amongst the dozens of illustrated editions of Alice published over the years, Harry Rountree's contribution may be the most remarkable. Luxuriously illustrated with 92 watercolors, many of which are full page, with the others carefully placed with textual wraparound, this is a marvelous evocation of Carroll's madcap world. Rountree's career as an illustrator was short lived, but this, along with his Aesop's Fables, are acknowledged masterpieces. The enduring popularity of all things Alice makes this both a timely and timeless Calla publication.
